mitt romney's very strong debate performance. nowhink what we are no seeing is the obama campaign strategy, which is to paint mitt romney as you cannot trust him. this barely resembles what we saw eight years ago when the election came down to ohio and the bush campaign was very successful in painting john kerry, the challenger, as a foot locker -- a flip-flopper. guest: so many similarities between 2004 and 2008. whether it's george w. bush or barack obama. the campaigns in the state are very similar. host: marie is on the phone from cleveland, ohio. caller: i have been in cleveland all my life. i heard your guests talking about hamilton. hamilton yes, hamilton county is a heavily republican state, but there are lot of democrats also in hamilton. i am part of cuyahoga county. i believe president obama will take ohio. i believe a lot of it has to do with the auto industry and the people that supply the parts to that industry along with the fact that no one trusts romney in this state. he has flip flopped on everything and allied. when he said the although ban -- when he said the a

differences. host: we heard a bit in the debate last week about where mitt romney stands on his tax plan. here is a headline coming to us. in the fog of numbers, there is little tax clarity from obama and romney. $5 trillion, whether or not tax cuts will equal $5 trillion. there is a difference in this number. guest: the $5 trillion is the gross cost of reducing rates 20% across the board. the. gov. romney made is it is unfair to call it a tax cut because he intends to offset the cost through base broadening. i think one thing that was interesting is although gov. romney has proposed 20%, he did not actually mentioned that number in the debate. i think what he did emphasize instead is he was not going to add to the deficit or increase taxes on the middle class. analyses has been done that shows it is a little bit difficult to keep those while cutting the rate by 20%. the decision not to mention the 20% number suggests that is where he will likely adjust his plan. he will stick with this plan of not raising taxes on the middle- class or adding to the deficit. host: let's hear what gov. romney h
